Loosen the braid from your hair

Your heart is so full of worry and care

Can you let go of that

Which is not yours

To agonise over

Let what is done be done?

When trouble strikes

And you reach out

You see how calm and unflappable

Other people can be

Your burden does not seem to touch

Them in any way

Is this the secret of living

Though your heart can ache

And you can wish

So often for things to be

So different

For you not to have been distracted

Or to have made mistakes

Can you let the seeing

And the accepting

Open your eyes and heart

But still allow what is

To be?
